AEW’s roster is changing as time goes on, and a couple of wrestlers have left the company in recent memory. William Regal departed as Tony Khan allowed him to make return to WWE, and AQA was also removed from the roster after she left the business in July. Now, Frankie Kazarian’s time with AEW is officially over.

According to a report from Fightful’s paywall, Frankie Kazarian was officially taken off the AEW roster. This came after he was full-time with the company all year in 2022, but he was seldom used.

Kazarian officially signed with IMPACT Wrestling, but several had long been questioning the status of his AEW deal, as he started working IMPACT and indies last year. He clarified recently he passed on an extension. We’re told that this past year Kazarian was still on a full-time deal. He’s also been officially removed from the roster page.

Frankie Kazarian has been active in the professional wrestling industry since the late 1990s, and he competed for several notable promotions throughout his career. Kazarian started his career in the independent circuit, and worked for various promotions such as PWG, CZW, and ROH. In 2004, he signed with WWE and competed in their developmental territory, OVW, and also briefly on their main roster before being released in 2005.


After leaving WWE, Frankie Kazarian returned to the indie wrestling circuit and worked for various promotions such as Impact Wrestling and Pro Wrestling NOAH. He then returned to ROH in 2011 and became a three-time ROH World Television Champion. After joining AEW in 2017, many fans couldn’t picture SCU breaking up or Kaz moving on, but now he is back with Impact Wrestling.

In 2017, Kazarian joined AEW, where he formed a tag team with Scorpio Sky known as SCU (SoCal Uncensored) and they have been active ever since, winning several championship titles and accolades.

We will have to see what’s next for Frankie Kazarian, but he will do it in Impact Wrestling now. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
